#1 Introduction: Why Clinics?
A cure for the ills of employer-sponsored healthcare
Traditional healthcare delivery models are broken, with both public and private organizations locked in a struggle against rising costs—even as health levels decline in the population of highest-risk employees. The statistics paint a stark picture: in any given year, just 10-15% of the workforce accounts for 80-90% of claims dollars. Even turning to a self-insured model doesn’t guarantee a solution. The real cure lies in establishing a worksite healthcare program rooted in better primary care. At the core of this is a modern on-site or near-site clinic model that emphasizes a shorter path to care and ultimately allows organizations to control their healthcare spend and gain greater plan steerage.
